..businesses and residents rightly up in arms about madcap ‘trial’ closures under the so-called ‘Emergency Active Travel Scheme’. craig mackinlay mp for south thanet “My latest email inbox filler is from businesses and residents rightly up in arms about madcap ‘trial’ closures under the so-called ‘Emergency Active Travel Scheme’.  These schemes, which have sprung up across the country, have been implemented without consultation and, it would seem, without an ounce of common sense as to how these daft schemes will impact trade, the normal lives of local people or traffic flows. FairFuelUK are absolutely right to highlight local council failingsRead Whole Article

Howard Cox wrote in the Daily Express, Aug 4 2020 The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, remains hell-bent on driving a political and social wedge between cyclists and drivers. He’s plotting a dangerous strategy against drivers with his recent colossal and unnecessary Congestion Charge hike, the further extension of his cash grabbing pay-to-pollute emission zone ­– and by fast-tracking the construction of free-to-use dedicated cycle lanes. The London Mayor knows there are votes in Lycra, fittingly borne out in the latest FairFuelUK survey of 25,000 road users, in which the contrast could not be starker. Some 87 per cent of dedicatedRead Whole Article

FairFuelUK (FFUK) and the Alliance of British Drivers (ABD) are seeking to legally challenge Sadiq Khan over London’s Congestion Charge re-introduction at 31% higher than before. The two campaign groups have teamed up to take on the might of TfL and the Mayor of London on the following issues related to the C-Charge. FFUK and ABD have through their Lawyers at Black Antelope delivered a LETTER BEFORE CLAIM / PRE-ACTION PROTOCOL FOR JUDICIAL REVIEW to Greater London Authority and Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.   This is a Pre-Action Protocol Letter against the decision of the Mayor of London, SadiqRead Whole Article

Here’s how can tell them! Please take part in the Drivers Ultimate Survey July 2020 Please take part in probably the most important Road User’s Survey ever carried out, in this volatile world of polarised opinion, health scares and anti driver media reporting. A survey that you’d thought the RAC or the AA should issue.  Any coverage in the media on motoring and driving issues has fallen almost to zero, except when drivers are designated the demons in the plethora of environmental stories. It seems only the not for profit motoring groups, the ABD and FairFuelUK are willing to putRead Whole Article

The Sun Covers the Congestion Charge Hile

The congestion charge in London will rocket 30% next month and NOW be enforced seven days a week, as the far left wing mayor struggles to pay for his debt-ridden transport system. And still under lock-down, the £11.50 charge will be reintroduced on Monday (18 May), along with the ultra-low emission zone which costs £12.50 for most vehicles and £100 for heavy lorries or coaches. “Sadiq Khan has truly shown his ego driven political colours, yet again. His latest chronic anti-driver policy will kill off  many of London’s struggling small and medium sized businesses, the haulage industry, van distributors and hardworkingRead Whole Article

Fuel Supply Chain Rip-Off

Updated May 14th Whilst the UK is in anguish and economic decline due to the unforeseen COVID19 tragedy, the Government has reacted laudably with various financial means to help businesses, employers, and employees. Yet the unchecked big oil brands and their fuel supply chain wholesalers have deliberately profiteered during the crisis. The evidence is incriminatory but ignored by the CMA and the Government too. The magnitude of the profiteering is on a scale that commands independent investigation. Here are the facts: In the 3 months between December 2019 to February 2020 average pump prices against average wholesale prices including allRead Whole Article

Here are the shocking statistics that still prove the fuel supply is deliberately profiteering, and even worse during #COVID19 lockdown. In this worrying time for all of us. wholesale petrol fell 21%, yet pump prices dropped on average just 9%. Diesel wholesale dropped 17% with filling up costs dropping by only 9%. And its not the independent garages fault either, they are being bullied by wholesalers and the big oil companies who are charging them sky high prices to their bulk deliveries. Average retail and wholesale Fuel Prices for the 3 months of Dec/Jan/Feb compared to the period of Corona-virusRead Whole Article

It has to stop, and it has to stop now! The fuel supply chain is deliberately not passing on the huge oil price crash values and wholesale price falls to retailers at the pumps. “Wholesale prices of diesel and petrol have plummeted. Pump prices have not followed suit anywhere near. The gap is growing by the day. It is more than shocking that in this time of an unprecedented health crisis, there are businesses deliberately holding back beneficial prices at the pumps. The unscrupulous fuel supply chain must be held to account, with an independent PumpWatch price monitoring watchdog being putRead Whole Article

Our rookie Chancellor has listened to common sense and frozen Fuel Duty for an unparalleled 10th consecutive Budget since George Osborne’s instinctive one penny cut in 2011. Rishi is hailed with a huge sigh of relief, by our 1.7m supporters, motorists, motorcyclists, van drivers and the commercial heartbeat of our economy, hauliers. His decision has been pressured by the ‘keep duty frozen’ letters, orchestrated by the indefatigable Robert Halfon MP and Esther McVey MP signed in total by 53 backbench Tory MPs. Our research showed that 2 out of 3 Tory voters in the red wall seats would take backRead Whole Article
